If this ever happens... Youre out of salt... And the nearest store is about 100 miles away and it isnt probably even open... And the neighbours are out of town and only the ones that you hates (all in my case!) and that hates you is home... And you cant get any salt... You need that salt so badly for your popcorn when youre watching a movie... OK! But you just happen to have a Cuaba Divino in the humidor... SAVED!! After youve smoked that you doesnt need any salt...

OK! It had a salty kind of flavour... I smoked a Cuaba Generoso about a year ago and thought it tasted salty, but this is ridicolous... It was like smoking a stick with a mountain of salt on top of it...

Other flavours that I noticed: there was some wood (like a salty Hemingway Short Story) and som other spicey flavours...

Whats wrong with this cigar? Is it sick or something? I think it was Mocobird who had a picture of Cuaba Divinos... How did they smoke for you? And in the picture of MoTheMans Closet I noticed a lot of Cuaba boxes... There must have been a box of Cuaba Divinos there...

Re: Cuaba Divinos

Hey Rey,
Well I can't say I have ever tasted salt before in these or any cigar I have ever smoked. But when it comes to the different tastes and complexities I'm not very good at distinguishing them. You don't see me posting reviews here. :) Now the box that I posted a picture of in the gallery is the first box of Cuaba's that I have bought. They have a date of April '03. I have smoked three of them so far and have really enjoyed them. They have a nice medium body taste to them and the size and shape is really cool. Perfect freeway size for a 15 or 20 minute drive. I can see this box won't last long.... :D

If I enjoy the rest of the box as much as the first three I'm sure I'll be trying some different sizes.

Also when I read the top3 and the bottom3 lists on CW... Surprisingly often the Cuaba was in the bottom3-lists along with for example Vegerous...

Re: Cuaba Divinos

I smoked most of 2 boxes of Cuabas from PEL 03 last year. Divinos and Tradiconales. Liked them both a lot, didn't find anything salty about them.

Found the flavor interesting, more powerful than I expected but quite enjoyable ... thats why the boxes didn't last long. The ratings on T25 are not that bad, 8.46 for tradicionales, 8.52 for exclusivos and 7.44 for Divonos (in part caused by one sub-5 rating among only 9 reviews). I like them a lot and think the thighs of the virgins rolling those must have been sweaty that day....

Re: Cuaba Divinos

I got to enjoy one of these tonight thanks to mr c. Now this being only my second cuban I can't really give an informed opinion. I didn't taste any salt in this one, but from reading reviews, I hear that comment quite a bit. This one was from '02 I believe Joe said. It had a nice medium body and lots of smoke. This would be a great lunchtime smoke. And I love the shape of these things. I'm sure I see more of these in my darkside future.

Re: Cuaba Divinos

Must be a divino day. I had one provided by MO (Thank You Again) driving back to the office tonight. Crazy little sticks. Burn was a little strange but the flavor was very unusual. Maybe its the shape but it chaged a lot during the smoke. Started lite and fluffy. Twang high in the nose. Towards the middle it got more flavorful I kept thinking barouque but thats not a flavor. I guess richer is the right term. Nice little smoke definitely a change-up vs some other smaller cubans I have been smoking lately. Got a reasonable buzz too. Ended up driving around the office complex to finish it. Must have had some age kept thiniking how the $%#@ am i going to be able to enjoy an aged stick like this from my humi. Years seem like such a long time to wait.

Re: Cuaba Divinos

I was about to order a box of these, but the vendor was out. So, for $8 more, I grabbed up a box of the slightly longer Tradicionales. 5 years of age on em too!

Re: Cuaba Divinos

I keep hear how appealing the Cuaba line is to a lot of monkeys so I think I'm gonna have to try some.

Interesting review though ERDM, I've heard that the Cuaba's are love 'em or hate 'em type smokes so its always interesting to see what people think.

Thanx for the comments guys.

Re: Cuaba Divinos

Had my second of these last night (both of them come courtesy of JoeD) The first that I had back in May blew my socks off. Full, rich and unusual flavoring for this size of cigar made me fall in love with it. It was all I could do to let the second one rest. So, finally last night, after a really hard day, I decided to pull this out and give myself a break. While the newness had fallen away, this cigar is still stout, rich and extremely enjoyable. Full, lush smoke, medium draw, nice burn with a little flaky ash. I nubbed it completely. These will definitely be something I look to order.

Re: Cuaba Divinos

Had my first Cuaba the other day and oh man . It had some kick. My usual go to is SLC Regios. Completely different cigar. I can say if all the other Cuaba's are that good I might have to change goto sticks.

Re: Cuaba Divinos

I have a box, they are young though. I have had a few, and really haven't formed a good opinion on them yet. I am going to let them sit for awhile.

Interesting Cigar. Outstanding Construction. :)

Re: Cuaba Divinos

This Thread made me curious...

Smoking one of my Divinos right now...I think these are from March 06. They are fresh. They have been resting in my humi for a little over a month.

This particular stick has a VERY tight draw...A bit dissapointed. the two others that I have lit up seemed a bit better. Otherwise, it's fine. You just have to choke up on it a bit. Leather and Spice with Slightly Nutty flavors on this youngin. Medium Body.

No formal opinion Yet...I don't think it would be fair to judge these being so young....

This is what happened to me with a box of SP Belicosos a while back. They were friggin slat sticks that were nearly unsmokable. A couple were quite nice without the salt flavor.

Re: Cuaba Divinos

I'm looking forward to trying some of these. I love the figurado shape, and the size seems just right. Don't know about that salt thing, though.
